In July 2010, India legal news reports featured the changes in catering services that were announced by the Indian Railways Ministry. Soon, the Indian railways ministry will take charge of all catering services, from the grasp of the Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC). The process will take place in a phased manner. Further, the catering services will be provided through departmental catering. The increase in number of complaints about the quality of food served in the Indian Railways has prompted the government of India to frame a new policy.
